My wife and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary and although many things went wrong with the airlines and my luggage, Carole's B&B saved our trip. From a variety of breakfasts to its eclectic decor, it was very pleasant to come home to each night.

A lovely place for my fiancee and I to get some R&R. Carole, the owner, was friendly and welcoming. Her son, Michael, made a different breakfast each morning. Banana pancakes was a highlight. Both of them were very accommodating and attended to our needs. A 10-minute drive from WHOLE FOODS, a few blocks away from a great organic market called... More

My friend and I were travelling from Australia to San Diego for SDCC and NerdHQ. Carole provided a home away from home. We made excellent friends through staying at Carole's. The facilities were brilliant, the food was amazing, and Carole has provided such a warm and inviting environment. We spent nights sitting by the pool playing cards with other guests... More

My recent stay at Carole's Bed and Breakfast Inn was most interesting. Our trip to California culminated with a 2 day stay at the North Park area bed and breakfast. We had driven my 18 year old daughter's vehicle through the west from Illinois. She will be attending school in the area. I had mentioned to the owners son that... More

I had just received a brand new job in San Diego and had no place to live. Comicon was in town and I was up against it with finding a place to stay. I lucked out with Carole's because this has been a dream come true. Not only have I been welcomed like family but I have been comfortable, all... More

Carole´s bed and breakfast is fully recommendable, very comfortable, in a very nice neighborhood, quiet, and with fantastic personalized attention. Breakfast were always at a high level, plus a nice pool and free to use WIFI, definitively a perfect place to stay.

We had a wonderful time at Carole's Bed and Breakfast. With it being my first time to San Diego, I had to choose between a hotel and a bed and breakfast. I most definitely made the right decision!! It is a cozy cottage in a beautiful setting. We were treated like family and Carole went out of her way to... More

We spent four wonderful nights at Carole's Bed and Breakfast! Staying in the charming cottage called "Casita" gave us a living room, kitchen, and bedroom ... a very short walk from the main house and our great breakfasts! Carole and Michael invited our adult daughter, who had just moved to San Diego, to eat breakfast with us whenever she could... More

Me and my girlfriend stayed for 4 days and 3 nights and it was great. Carole was wonderful and very inviting. Michael cooked a mean breakfast and something different every morning. It was close to North park, Balboa Park, and downtown San Diego. I couldn't of asked for much more. What a pleasure it was.

My husband and I felt we went back in time in this cozy, craftsman style home! Carole was a warm and gracious hostess and went out of her way to suggest places to eat and things to do within walking distance. The living room walls were filled with family pictures of many generations. Our Rose Room opened onto a private... More
